Described as “The House of the People” Beirne Lane will provide a welcoming gastropub-style space with quality and affordable dining options, bridging the gap between bar and restaurant, and injecting a warm hospitality into the vibrant Brunswick Street Mall. With a menu set to reflect Beirne’s Irish heritage, as well as his love and fascination with Japan diners, can expect a diverse range of options to satisfy their hunger.
Brought to you by the Celissa Group, named after its founders Trent Meade and Matt Blyth's wives, Cecilie and Melisa. Celissa is centred around the principles of hospitality that have been embodied by these women. Including respect, honesty, integrity and selflessness. Having recently taken out the top prize for Hospitality & Tourism at Business News Australia’s Young Entrepreneur of the Year awards, Trent and Matt are excited to cater to Valley-goers seeking a high-quality gastropub experience too; dine and drink all day, and dance all night.
As one of Brisbane’s earliest prominent businessmen, Thomas Charles Beirne lived the 19th century Aussie dream; immigrating from Ireland as a young man with limited education, Beirne established himself as a draper, eventually opening the department store that lay the foundations for Fortitude Valley to become the retail, dining, and lifestyle hub that it is today.
Beirne Lanes menu offerings are set to reflect that of the Irish Heritage that Beirne represented himself. The extensive new menu offers bar snacks, a raw bar, Josper grill items, sides and desserts. Some highlights include the cheesy Japenese curry covered chips, chicken fat popcorn, spicy pork rings with seaweed crisps and peanuts. Paying its respects to the area's history will be the Beirne Lane take on a former Fortitude Valley classic, the Shilling Meal. Which will come with four freshly-shucked oysters, dry aged rib eye steak with buttermilk onion rings, and a clotted cream cannoli for something sweet. Perfect for sharing!
Arriving at Brunswick Street Mall in November, once the venue kicks off it will be showcasing Community Nights on Monday's, Sunday Sessions and a Sunday Brunch 'Breakfast Club.
